Grayson Waller established himself as one of the top stars during his time in NXT. The Australian WWE Superstar is such a natural heel that people can’t help but hate him for real. He was finally called up to the main roster and had a memorable segment with John Cena at WWE Money In The Bank. That said, it appears Waller was blasted for the segment.

The Cenation Leader made a shocking return to WWE during the Premium Live Event and announced that he wanted to bring WrestleMania to London. He was interrupted by Grayson Waller, who wanted WrestleMania to take place in Australia instead.

The segment ended with the 16-time world champion nailing the Australian star with an Attitude Adjustment, as Cena stood tall. It was a very well-received segment for numerous reasons.

While speaking on the Jim Cornette Experience, the wrestling veteran criticized Grayson Waller for playing a heel instead of being one. Cornette then blasted Waller for being fake in the segment.


“He’s playing a heel. Either they’re telling him to do this or this is the kind of stuff he wants to do but it’s totally fake because it’s obvious that he’s trying to be a heel on purpose because Grayson Waller would not talk to John Cena like he was a jobber. It’s see-through that he’s getting heat in quotation marks on purpose when he offers to help Cena by making him go viral and save his career.

It works if two guys are on the same level or if John was the main event guy from 15 years ago, and this is the main event guy now. It’s a nobody here telling a movie star off. It was even worse that the thing that they did with Theory because Theory at least had been on television and gotten a number of wins and was being pushed, and Theory ended up beating Cena in a match.”

Grayson Waller is also ready to make an in-ring return soon after injury. We will have to wait and see how WWE will continue to book Grayson Waller on Friday Night Smackdown in the coming weeks.
